Last July we were hit with a really bad hailstorm that wiped out our fruit trees and plants. Winter was quite dry and then in May we got nailed with lots of rain (good!) and snow (annoying!).
Finally, my gigantic lilac bush in the corner of my house gets beat up every year. I thought for sure that last foot of snow we got a couple weeks ago would do her in…but no, she is holding strong and was full of bees and butterflies!
Yesterday and overnight we got some really nasty thunderstorms including hail, everything looks to have survived. Now it’s time to watch and see what else blossoms!
